Context

All Purpose Cultural Cat Girl Nuku Nuku (万能文化猫娘) was a 1990/91 seinen manga , which later saw republication, animé  adaptations and the like. It doesn’t seem to have been particularly successful or unsuccessful, critically and commercially.

The following are verrrrry old notes, so they don’t really follow a format. They were just stats jotted down to share on a 1990s Majordomo mailing list. And they might only exist because animé access during the 1990s was patchy in most countries, making every available one notable.


History

Nuku Nuku was built by Kyusaku Natsume, ex-husband on the run. In the divorce, he got the boy and his wife, Akiko, got the megacorporation, Mishima (actually, she doesn’t own it, but she can abuse it). As Akiko was desperate to get back her son, Ryunosuke, Kyusaku had to finally finish android NK1124 which he’d been working on previously for Mishima.

Using the brain of Ryunosuke’s short-lived pet cat, Kyusaku activated NK1124, soon to be nicknamed Nuku Nuku.

Nuku Nuku was rebuilt as a young high school girl to protect Ryonosuke. As Kyusaku was a teacher the same school, Nuku Nuku was in several of his classes but in none of Ryunosuke’s as he was effectively an elementary school student.

You can probably see where this is going, but in the battles to come, Nuku Nuku battled Akiko’s henchgirls Arisa (violent a.k.a. psycho) and Kyoko (mild-mannered) who used such vehicles as Poison 1, Mishima’s VTOL gunship.


Personality

Nuku Nuku obviously has a few difficulties figuring out what is expected of her as a human. But her cuteness smooths over any major difficulties (at least with most men).

Besides her enhanced physical strength, the only normally visible sign of her origins are a pair of cat ears which flip up out of her head when she’s stressed. She also has a habit of taking off on all fours after mice, and lists her favourite food as fish, and pastime as sunbathing.
